Scam is a strong word but be very wary of any shop, dealer or not, where the service advisors are on commission. I was waiting at a dealer here in Cherokee County, GA recently and witnessed customer after customer being told they needed transmission flushes, PS flushes, wiper blades, whatever, none of those related to why they were there (based on overhearing the discussions). Some of that could be legit but you can tell from a mile away when an owner knows nothing about their car and could probably be persuaded to do an engine swap if pushed hard enough.

Which reminds me, they had a Ď22 Tundra on a lift that looked like an exploded view diagram. Everything was off this thing, almost like a frame swap. Still kicking myself for not taking a pic. It was undergoing an engine rebuild, had already been there a month, and was nowhere close to finished. Some kind of internal failure that caused catastrophic damage. Yikes.

Don't mess with Texas

The OP is from TX - they can do no wrong, know no wrong, and have done no wrong.

Not sure why everyone here is piling on a guy that makes up a scenario in his head to be pissed about. (sarcasm)

I mean we all know it's only a scam if you are too stupid to do any independent research.

You will win an argument with a Texan when pigs fly.
